Growers

We come from all over Australia, finding resonance in each other’s stories of commitment to happy and healthy sheep, sustainable land and water management, and the desire to have a voice in how our merino wool is marketed and sold beyond the farm gate.

Northern Tablelands

The Northern Tablelands of NSW has been the home to many generations of committed wool growers from as early as the 1830’s. Its scenery is both spectacular and unique, located in the high country on the east coast of Australia. 

The merino growers in this region have a proud reputation for delivering a consistent supply of high quality, clean, sound, bright and soft merino fleece across the ultrafine & superfine wool classifications.

Tasmania

The Tasmanian climate is cooler on average than most places in Australia, providing the perfect environment with its moderate temperatures and consistent rainfalls for the production of uniform, strong and consistent fibres.

Tasmania’s heritage for merino wool production dates back to the early days of Australian settlement. Our Tasmanian growers support a long-term commitment to ensuring the pristine environment, fresh water and clean air are at the centre of their production methods. This philosophy is a core reason that many consumers love to connect with merino wool grown naturally in this environment.
